Looking for alternative/additional options to enhance your neurotology/otology training?

Disclaimer: The ANS is not affiliated with any of the following courses. We want to provide as much information as we can to our Trainees. 

The University of Michigan Department of Otolaryngology-Head & Neck Surgery offers a post-residency research training opportunity in collaboration with the Kresge Hearing Research institute funded by our T-32 training grant every year.  Since 1986, the Advanced Research Training in Otolaryngology Program (ARTOP) has provided research training in otolaryngology for medical students, resident physicians and post-residency fellows to develop the next generation of clinician-scientists.  This opportunity may be of interest to any candidate who fails to match into a clinical Neurotology fellowship and seeks to improve their academic resume, or for those who wish to undertake an otologic research fellowship to prepare for an academic career with or without further clinical training.  If you would like more information about the ARTOP Program, please contact the program director, Dr. Gabriel Corfas, [email protected] or the Neurotology fellowship program director, Dr. Steven Telian, [email protected].

 Trainee Membership

The ANS Trainee membership category was created in 2004 by the ANS Executive Council with hopes that all Neurotology Fellows, Otolaryngology-HNS Residents, and Post Doctorate Researchers would apply for ANS entry-level membership as a full member at the close of his or her training. Trainee membership will co-terminate with the residency/training program at which time the Trainee member will be notified to apply for membership.

The following qualifications are required for Trainee Membership in the American Neurotology Society.

1. The candidate shall have earned a Medical Degree of MD, DO, PhD, or the equivalent.

2. In training in a field of study related to the field of Neurotology (Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery Residency, Neurotology Fellowship or post doctoral research position).

3. Special interest in the field of Neurotology

4. Highest ethical and moral standards

5. Letter from Department Chair and/or Fellowship/Program Director validating your good standing as a Trainee including the duration of the program and expected date of completion. (letter must be uploaded with your application)
